Earlier this month, we reported that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (or more commonly known as PUBG) has managed to sell over seven million copies, and had over 600,000 concurrent players. Well, it seems that number is old news.
If you check Steam Charts, PUBG has now topped over 800,000 concurrent players! You read that right! It’s less than 200,000 player shy of a million people all playing PUBG at the same time. What’s more, it even beat out perennial heavyweights Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) and Valve’s Dota 2!
Check out some of the numbers from earlier today.
Could PUBG sustain this astronomic up-tick? We can’t say for sure since some games do flame out once the initial honeymoon phase has stopped, but for now, PUBG is king of PC gaming and it’s really odd to say that.

Once PUBG crosses over the one million mark, we’ll let you know.
